Can some one tell me the value of a 12 gage Double Barrel shot gun? It is from the early 70’s. It was made by Boito for K-Mart. I no longer hunt and really have no use for it, so I want to get rid of it. Out of a scale of 1 to 10 I would say that it is at a 6.5 shoots great but the bluing has some rust probably from being stored in the attic.

Thanks

The Blue Book does not list models and prices for Boitos. It has only this brief statement.

Boito shotguns were inexepensive, utilitarian shotguns that were shootable, but not collectible. Because of this, prices typically range between $75 - $175, depending on the gauge and condition.

12 guage guns usually are worth less than the small gauges. Since yours is 12 gauge with some rust, I would guess its value is closer to the bottom of that range than to the top.

I saw one at a gunshow last Saturday that was about a 90% gun. The owner was asking $250 and was getting no interest at that price. Boito has a rather poor reputation here in the US. They once made a pretty good SxS that was not imported to the US. They were the M131 ond M130 and resembled the Stevens M311 boxlock. Never seen one here.

I was looking at Roys list and noticed that a VR Boito 12ga sold for $171 in 2004. This was a gun that actually sold at auction.
